It is not a Monitor Issue. It seems to be an issue with the Video Card (if any) or the Drviers installed for the Video Card. Try reinstalling the drivers for the Video Card and also flash the BIOS for the same. You cal also change the setting in BIOS inorder to stop restarting the system on any errors.

For any further support please call Dell Tech support @ 1-800-624-9896

Hi!

If you are able to use a known good monitor with Dell Optiplex GX280, obviously the problem is with the monitor. If you only have one monitor, try to reseat the cable from the monitor going to the blue port if its analog (white port if its digital). if it does the same thing tried to open the chassis then reseat the video card (check this site for the instruction for the manual, http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/opgx280/en/ug/index.htm)
if you still dont get anything on the screen, most likely the problem would be the video card.

If you tried to connect the monitor to a laptop make sure to toggle it using FN and F8. Toggle it three times and observe if you'll be able to see display either on one screen or both. if you're able to see something on the laptop and nothing on the monitor then its a problem with the monitor.

Hope this helps!

I have a Dell optiplex GX-280 with an intel 915 however when I look in the device manager there is a Yellow Question Mark on "Multimedia Video Controller" it seems that the video driver does not load could...


You have a number of ways to do this.

There should be a "Service Tag" on the unit. Normally found in the same spot as the serial number, etc. It is usually a combo of 6 letters and numbers.

Go to Dells support site.

You can enter this Service tag (you may have to move around the support site a bit) and you should get info on that particular system. You should be able to download drivers for the sound card from this area.

--- or ---

You can manually enter you model info (Optiplex, Gx280) on the same page "service Tag" page and get to the drivers and downloads section

Here is a link that will jump start you. While the GX280 shown is a mini-tower. You will find a driver for the 915 under the "Video" dropdown.

Dell Optiplex GX280 restarts suddenly? all files closed and . the restart could be after 2,3 minutes of power on. I don't know why its behaving like this?


Hi, sounds like a crash, do you get any report messages after reboot? Try starting in safe mode; press Del button during initial bootup, once in safe mode you can reset to a time before the problem started. Hope this helps, if not come back to me?

Dell gx280 wont run I installed new video card in pci e slot


I had exactly the same problem on my friends Dell GX280. It will only let you use the onboard card or the new radeon card not both together. In the end we had to buy a Radeon card that was made specifically for two monitors and disable the onboard card on BIOS. It would not let us use the two seperate cards in unison.

How do I replace the video card in my Dell Optiplex GX280 computer?


There are two black button of the sides near the back. Press both in and lift the top upwards. It is hinged at the front and opens like a book. The GX280 has a built-in video card.

Check to see if it has another by checking the PCI slots for a card with the monitor's plug on the rear. (You can check without opening the computer by opening the Device Manager. Make sure View has "show hidden" selected. Under Display, look to see what is listed. More than one, means you have a card installed in addition to the built in card.

Remove the second card or a blank if there is no second card. Insert the new video card. Close the unit and restart. If you have a CD with the video card, install it when prompted.

Good Luck

Increase the amount of shared video dell gx280


Hello!

Don´t lose time for that, I think that you have integrated grafik in own chip, and they have same options with 1 or 64 MB, option in bios, that isn´t a standard shared grafik. Try AGP card if you have a socet for that.
